Blinded by the neighbour’s house.
The bird from last year (which might be a fieldfare) moved from outside my bedroom window to outside the living room window.
So it’s now chirping its little head off on the other side of the apartment. Which means more sleep for me. Yay!
But, man, it’s loud…
As I’m sure you all remember, in the last terrifying chapter of this story, I found that the white fluff had spread to another room.
During the Xmas holidays, I visited my mother. She’s brilliant with all kinds of plants and stuff, so I showed her the pictures of the aloe armageddon. She said: “Are you sure that’s a fungus? It might be some kind of insect.” I said “Sure I’m sure! Nothing moved! I didn’t see anything insectey. Just the fluff! Mooooomm!!!”
And guess what.
Are there any apartments for sale nearby that I can move to? Hm? Hm?
Every night at 2AM this bird starts chirping outside my window:
After a while, it realises that just because it’s getting lighter, it’s not actually morning yet, so it goes back to sleep, and doesn’t get up until 7.
But what kind of bird is it? It makes a lot of varied sounds, and I haven’t been able to actually see it. It’s hiding in the trees.
Inquiring mind wants to know.
